I am trying to wrap my head around why Google's rich snippet tool isn't showing any product schemas for Amazon product pages. For example, this page has a featured snippet in search results https://www.amazon.com/Braun-790cc-4-Electric-Station-Cordless/dp/B003YJAZZ4 but the rich snippet tool doesn't shown any. What could be the likely reason?

Thank you all for the inputs..I thought I was missing something but it is a bit bewildering that a site as huge as Amazon chooses to not apply rich snippets. And +Suraj Gadage appreciate you sharing information with regards to tables. Wasn't aware of it in the least bit.

What are your experiences with 're-branding' an established website? Purely for the purpose of a better domain name. Do you lose much power/authority/trust/rankings when using the 301 redirect?

If the rebrand is worthwhile, and it really is a more catchy, memorable, cite-able domain then no matter what the initial hit, it will always be worth it in the longer term. Even if Google still had the original damping factor per jump of 15% that was in the original papers, you should make that up pretty quickly.

Over the past 6 months or so I have actively stopped working one of my site as an experiment. The results are below. I have no clue why this dropped so significantly. Link profile is clean, its fast, on page is decent.

I'm seeing a competitor rank very well with his site duplicated across 3 domains. The brandable domain and 2 exact match domain names. And it appears as though the EMD's are pushing the main site some power.
Does Google penalise or ignore the duplicate sites on the EMD's? I actually own the EMD of the main term in our niche and wondering what to do with it.............

hmmm very interesting. At this point the site that is ranking (cryo . com . au) only has domain age over me. Yeah im not wasting anytime on this competitor, just an observation. I've really put this niche on the map here in Australia with being on prime time news, national news paper, radio, etc. Picked up a lot of authority links from this. Its prob only a matter of time before my hard work is reflected in the serps. (i hope lol)

Hello guys,

We are almost done with our new travel project and currently I'm working on some internal links case.

So TL;DR we will have about 14 million sub pages per domain and I'm looking for a quite easy logic which will allow me to pass some of the link juice from one sub page to another and so on. We have some core pages which bring the most traffic and some less important ones which are made mostly for long tail search queries. The top ones will be included on almost every other sub page to pass as much link juice as it's possible but with other ones - here game begins. I have few ideas so far but I'm not sure if any of those will be 100% good.:

1. We do internal linking by randomizing unique set of links on every page + we create an optimized sitemap.xml file and upload it to Google Search Console.

2. We try with Hamiltonian cycle so that each page is linked only once and links only once to another page + sitemap uploaded via GSC. Of course I will somehow scale it to be sure that almost every page is linked. The core here is to get a graph

3. We use internal linking only for top pages + we implement rel="prev" and rel="next" for other ones showing Google what is going on + sitemap.xml in GSC.

4. We group pages based on their types and do one of the ideas (1, 2 or 3) on page groups level.

As you probably see - each option has it's own issue. No. 1 won't be able to show any hierarchy on this level, no. 2 looks good but still no hierarchy and last, 3rd option is all the way tricky.

In general I think that treating subpages in this domain as a graph and nodes with some relations between them is easiest way to discover how to effectively work on internal links on them. So maybe I should look for a graph idea which will be the best for creating so large scale internal links structure?

If somebody would have some time to discuss the case with me on mail/PW I would be really happy to share more details.

Hi guys,

Just looking over the analytics data for a new client, and there a bit of an anomaly I've not come across before.

Display/remarketing brings in the highest amount of usage sessions of all traffic sources, however average session duration is extremely low - about 3 seconds. What makes this confusing is that bounce rate is very low and average pages per session is around 2.

Any ideas as to how this could be? I can't see how so many people could possibly spend < 3 seconds on the website, yet consistently manage to visit at least 2 pages on the website.

Sabotage? Bug? Any ideas of what to look into would be appreciated.

Cheers.

What is the best way to fix indexing issues like? The issue is that the majority of these pages can really only be found when using the search tool. Example: http://www.bizlistings.com.au/business-for-sale/New-South-Wales/penrith

So about 2 months back one of my sites disappeared from Google for 2 main terms (business for sale and businesses fro sale). No other terms dropped. Even after today's Penguin traffic remained steady. My link profile is healthy/natural. Any ideas to help me find the issue would be awesome!

I need some technical backup on an indexing issue.

4000 pages were indexed for the first time on 27 August BUT they all had the same brand name title.

The problem was spotted and fixed and the xml site map submitted again to search console.

Cache date is remaining 27 august but the devs are telling me the pages have been reinserted because the pages can be rendered in search with the new titles through a long tail search.

My argument is that, as organic traffic has not increased at all over the period, and the cache date is old that the long tail search result is coincidental based on the body content.

Am I right in thinking the search results are based on the indexed page which is the same as the cached page BUT the serps can show the new title from the live page?

I hope that makes sense. I'm willing to be wrong but gut tells me something is not right with the indexing.

Thanks
Kath

No worries +Kath Dawson. I often miss updated messages. Never enough hours in the day. If you've got a duplicate content issue then likely Google isn't going to rush to replace what is there with the new URLs for sure, if they are substantively the same.

Give the Google keyword planner range issue what keyword research methods would you suggest for low budget small businesses who don't have an ongoing adwords campaign?

Tools?
Other methods?

Thanks!

I posted an article about cryotherapy in this SEO forum by mistake which was meant for my personal page. Done it twice now over the past few weeks, thinking I was on my personal page. Turns out I wasn't.

Sorry to offend anyone.

Thankfully, we are seeing massive upgrades in our ranking on all our local campaigns, keywords that had been hanging around the #5 or #6 mark are now up @ either #2 or #3, not seen any dramatic changes in the map packs.

Sadly, I have noticed that yellowpages.com.au pages have jumped in rankings as well, unfortunately, they all look like "search result pages" related to the KW targeted.

Tip - Always copy and paste the headlines of previously published press releases and search for them (using inverted quotes) in Google to see where they've been syndicated. This will give you a better idea of quality.

Can anyone out there help me with a quick question about Google SERPs and paywall pages?

I have a property client who wants prospects to register in order to view property details. That's fine of course but we also want the page to rank. At the moment Google indexes the page which ranks but the user experience takes you straight to a login page. In my view that contravenes Google's Guidelines.

I've been asked how sites with paywalls handle this issue and looking at the FT.com the pages are indexed and the text is obscured BUT the title of the article and am image are shown.

I don't want my client to be at risk of a penalty for cloaking content so should they handle it like the FT and display some of the content and obscure the rest?

Or would the FT be considered to be cloaking content? I can't see them getting that wrong tbh but what do you think?

Cheers,
Kath

I agree +Ammon Johns I haven't seen it done in a very long time but back then I had a client who was cloaking a page packed with repeated keywords. It was blatant and awful. In this case it's not trying to game the search engines in the same way but unfortunately the principle is the same and the experience for the visitor is different. They are looking at alternatives now :)
